The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is mourning the death of President Matt Branam, who suffered a medical emergency in his office Friday morning and died shortly after he was rushed to a hospital. Branam was named president in 2009, after first serving several months as interim president. He spent most of his career in the corporate and nonprofit worlds before returning to his alma mater to serve as interim president. The Indianapolis Star noted that Branam had wide support on the campus and among alumni, and that many hoped he would bring stable leadership to Rose-Hulman, which saw several short-term presidencies between 2004 and Branam's arrival.
